Although it debuted to negative reviews, the third film of spider-man directed by Sam Raimi gradually managed to win the hearts of fans. Internet memes certainly contributed to her redemption. One of the most popular jokes in the community has been revived thanks to actor Yuri Lowenthal.
For those who don’t know, spider-man 3 has a scene in which Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) dances outside a clothing store under the influence of the fearsome Venom symbiote. It’s a sequence that received a lot of criticism at the film’s premiere, but now has legendary status in the eyes of fans.
Since the film’s premiere in that distant 2007, Marvel has referred to the controversial and iconic dance on multiple occasions. One of the best known is in the opening scene of Into the Spider-VerseSony’s animated film that debuted in 2018.
It is unknown if we will see another recreation of that sequence in an official product, but the actor behind Peter Parker in the most recent Insomniac Games video games was in charge of keeping the meme alive.
